1. A Druid does not wield a weapon that cannot also be a tool.
2. Druids of Mielikki can also take an oath of Oath of Iron enabling them to use steel and other metals. They basically become warriors of nature in a sense and are the only sect of druids outside of the norm to use steel and other metals. www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Oaths_of_Iron_(3.5e_Feat)
3. Druidic ways are not shared outside of their nature circles. It is strictly forbidden. (Working on source material for that atm).
Here's a link for more Druid source material: www.realmshelps.net/charbuild/classes/druid.shtml
Once I find my list of oaths though, I'll post those as well.
The link you provided for Oath of Iron specifically is a listing for a homebrew feat that appears in the DnD Netbook of Feats.
Druids of Mielikki can use equipment a ranger could use without the necessity of a feat to grant the ability (though they'd still need a feat to use the equipment effectively if they're not otherwise proficient). It's a standard feature for druids of the faith.
The 3.5e druid is only restricted from using metal armors and shields. There's no wording to suggest they can't use metal weapons. They have a very short list of weapons for which they're proficient, but the class does not restrict them from metal weapons, or any other weapons, so any druid could potentially use weapons a ranger could use if they have the proficiency to do so. Elven druids can already do this as they also have elven weapon proficiency with bows and some swords.
